WITH THE MOTTO “move for more,” Chery Auto Philippines is also setting its sights on addressing “the number of buyers who still need value but want more premium features and a sportier design.” This is what it invoked when it launched the 2022 Tiggo 2 Pro.
“We are excited to introduce the new Chery Tiggo 2 Pro to Filipino new car buyers. With its upmarket styling and premium features, we expect it to surprise and delight Filipinos who are eager to ‘move for more’ who want and expect to get more from this very affordable new car,” said Chery Auto Philippines President Erroll Duenas in a release.
As with the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro launched earlier this year, the new Tiggo 2 Pro’s upscale European-inspired design was executed by Chery Vice-President and Global Chief of Car Design Kevin Rice. The Briton was instrumental in the design of Mazdas, including the MX-5 Miata, from 1999 to 2005 as Hiroshima’s European Design Director. He also worked with BMW on the exterior design of the previous 1, 3, and 4 Series.
The new Tiggo 2 Pro boasts a big, bold starburst grille and slim, high-mounted LED daytime running lights (DRLs) for enhanced road visibility. The headlights now have a “follow-me-home” feature to illuminate the occupants’ path as they walk away from the car. The lights then automatically turn off after a while.
The Tiggo 2 Pro gets chrome trims on the window beltline and along the rocker panel below the doors. It has distinctive character lines, power side mirrors with turn signals, roof rails, and 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels with 205/55R16 tires. On the rear are chrome-tipped dual tailpipes housed within a silver-colored under-bumper diffuser, LED tail lights, and a spoiler.
Inside, the new Tiggo 2 Pro features black faux leather and a fabric-covered cabin. Elegant single stitching on the seats and silver trim on the doors, console, and leather steering wheel further add to the upmarket feel. The driver even has a footrest. A biggest-in-class nine-inch touchscreen four-speaker infotainment system boasts Bluetooth, Mirror Link, QDLink, and Apple CarPlay and USB connectivity, as well as a trip computer within the digital instrument panel.
Other premium Tiggo 2 Pro highlights include an Intelligent Remote Key with remote engine start that lets the driver start the engine and cool the interior even before entering the car, push-button engine start/stop, cruise control, reversing camera with dynamic guidelines and reversing sensors, tailgate remote open, headlight height adjustment, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, four-way adjustable front passenger seat, one-touch-down on all four windows, and multi-function control buttons for the tilt flat-bottom steering wheel.
Under the hood is a 1.5-liter, Euro 5-compliant, four-cylinder gasoline engine mated with a nine-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) for fuel efficiency. The Tiggo 2 Pro’s suite of safety and security features include dual front air bags, four-wheel disc brakes, Isofix seat anchor, an electronic anti-theft system with engine immobilizer, and three-point seat belts for all five occupants.
The new Tiggo 2 Pro is priced at P818,000 and receives Chery’s standard 10-year/one-million-km engine warranty, a five-year/150,000-km general vehicle warranty, free three-year preventive maintenance service (PMS), and free three-year roadside assistance.
